Well - It's SUPPOSED To Be The Posts Of The Week....

So this is what a popular blog looks like from the inside! Wow! So shiny...so many colourful buttons and levers and knobs....

Oh, hi. Sorry about that undignified preamble. And here I'd promised myself not to be dazzled by the glamour. Sheesh. It's like when I went to Toronto and got a crick in my neck from counting all the tall buildings. Had to go home after a half-hour.

Anyway.

This isn't being written by Hilary. It's Frank here, pinch hitting for her. Not to worry - she's fine. She's still basking at my family's cottage in the wilds of Ontario. We decided to extend our stay for a few days but I had to come home to see Son #2 off, as he starts longish stint away from home at a job site.

I'm heading back to the cottage tomorrow to rejoin her and Benny. Hilary asked that I s'plain to her people that she, and the POTW will return next week.

Which I have done.

(Although I set this to appear on Wednesday, June 23rd, I wrote it on June 21st. So, happy Summer Solstice for those in the northern hemisphere!)

Now...I wonder what this button does....?

Loved the first sentence as it reminded me of a picture I once posted on my blog, hehe.;)
Dear Frank and Hilary, enjoy your days at the cottage.;))

You have every right to be impressed with Hilary's blog, inside and out. It is one of the best. Thanks for the update, tell Hilary we wish her a wonderful week.

I LOVE this blog, so I understand how you might also, Frank. Thanks for letting me know it's really cool on the inside, too. Happy Solstice to you, too!

Thanks, Frank .. this is one instance where I hope no one kills the messenger

happy cottage time to both you crazy kids

photowannabe said...

Enjoy your extended time. Frank did a great job posting and I don't think he fiddled with any buttons...

kcinnova said...

Hilary, you are very brave to let Frank into the inner workings of your blog. It would take a true emergency for me to release the reigns to SuperDad or any of the boys.
Hope you're having fun!

Aloha from Hawaii, Cottage people!

You shouldn't have pressed that button.
Look what happened.... we had an EARTHQUAKE!

Pauline said...

I agree with Stacey - this should be a POTW. The wilds of Ontario sound appealing. Enjoy them!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Nice job on the update Frank. Thanks for checking and.

Have a great time at the cottage. Even say "I'm at the cottage" sounds relaxing. Ahhhh.

Cheers,

I agree with Stacey and Pauline, POTW!
Enjoy the wilds.

For some reason, your facination makes me thing of the Wizard of Oz! Continue having oodles of fun!

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Frank! Hope you two are having a great time at the cottage, and that you didn't push that shiny button and screw anything up in Hilary's blog!
Oh, and did y'all feel the earthquake there?

Moannie said...

Enjoy your holiday, but hurry back now, you hear?

From your previous photos of the cottage and its lake setting, I'd have stayed longer also. Enjoy.

Slamdunk said...

Ha, enjoy your time in the Captain's chair--I might be replaced forever if my spouse had any interest in guest blogging for me.

I think Frank has hijacked your blog, Hilary ;-)) Great pinch hitter!! Hope you are having a wonderful time...and relaxing! See you when you get back! Love, Janine XO

holdingmoments said...

Have a great time.

Bossy Betty said...

Good Job, Frank! We are all so very proud of you!

Hilary said...

Thank you, Frank for doing such a great job of posting for me. You might just have to be a guest blogger more often. ;) Thanks also to everyone who stopped by to comment regardless of my absence. It was great to come home and read all of your supportive remarks.

As for that earthquake, Frank and I were fishing in a boat at the time. I never felt a thing but Frank says that in retrospect, he felt it through his rod. No further comment is necessary there.

I'll be by to visit your blogs over the next few days. Thanks again for your always-wonderful support.
